Ireland’s captain made a big statement about playing with India’s ‘B’ team, know what he said
This is going to be the second time in the history of Indian cricket, when two teams of India will play cricket with different countries simultaneously. Let us tell you that an Indian team is currently on a tour of England, whose captain is Rohit Sharma. On the other hand, under the leadership of Hardik Pandya, the second team will play the first T20 against Ireland today. However, this team is being called India’s B team.
Last year too, the Indian team played two different series at the same time, where one team toured Sri Lanka for a limited overs series and the other team was in England. Before the first T20, Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie said that he will miss many players of India in the T20 match. He says that the team fielded by the Indian managers is the best, but we will miss some players.
Andrew Balbirnie On Team India:
Balbirnie said in the pre-series press conference, “Any Indian team you play with these days is fantastic. It shows the depth of Indian cricket that they can take two teams on the field at the same time.”
Balbirnie lauded the way the Indian Premier League (IPL) is finding new players for India. He further said, “Many youngsters are coming to the IPL league which is organized every year. Young players are doing their best to make it to the Indian team. In the 50-over World Cup in October next year, the Indian team has many players. There will be all the faces that they will place in the playing XI. So we know this is a good Indian team and we are looking forward to playing with the players of the team.”
He further said, “The good thing about IPL is that you see all these players performing in many matches. Every day there is one match when IPL is on. So we have a lot of performances from bowlers and batsmen. There’s footage.” At the same time, he said about the first match that, “Homework will be done before playing the first T20 match on Sunday, so that we can dominate the match.”
